Ranking The Office Episodes: 100-51

100. Viewing Party (Season 7, Episode 8) – Erin and Gabe have everyone over to Gabe’s for a viewing party of Glee – inspiring quite a bit of insanity. Michael becomes petty (of course) when he realizes everyone in the office now thinks of Gabe, and not him, as the boss. Andy is still jealous of Gabe – and ends up taking a lot of ground seahorse that doesn’t go well. And some people are really, really into Glee. It’s also fun for Jim and Pam to realize that Dwight can calm their baby more than they can. It’s also nice to get out of the office with the whole group – although the episode right after Christening seems like an odd time to do one.
99. Boys and Girls (Season 2, Episode 15) – Jan convenes a meeting with the women in the office – admitting it’s in part to determine if there are any standouts there (there are not) – and Michael feeling left out, gathers all the men in the warehouse – and screwing up in two ways – the first being in his inability to do the warehouse work, the second in perhaps endorsing a union. It’s all very funny – and it really shows for the first time, what the difference between Jim and Roy are – given the different ways they react to a possible graphic design course being offer by the company to Pam. Perhaps not the most memorable one, but a fine one just the same.
98. Drug Testing (Season 2, Episode 20) – A joint is found in the parking lot, and Dwight goes on the offensive, launching an investigation, that everyone just shrugs off – except Michael, who recently attended an Alicia Keys concert, and is concerned the clove cigarettes being passed around may not been legal. Basically, a wonderful Michael and Dwight episode – with Michael pressuring his protégé to give him clean urine, no matter the personal consequences for Dwight – which really does work. Jim losing a jinx to Pam – and then the vending machine being out of Cokes, meaning he has to go all day without speaking, is also amusing.
97. Launch Party (Season 4, Episode 3) – The website is launching – and Michael believes he is invited to the big launch party in New York – when in reality, he’s going to be stuck in Scranton at the satellite party with everyone else. Meanwhile, Dwight decides to try and outsell the website on its launch day – in an attempt to win back Angela, as Jim and Pam make him think the website is talking to him. In the second half (because it’s another hour long, that would be split for syndication) Michael takes a teenage pizza boy hostage for refusing his coupon. Yes, it’s still probably better as two episodes, but this one has continuity and works quite well.
96. Did I Stutter? (Season 4, Episode 12) – Perhaps the most Stanley-centric episode of the entire run – and as someone who loves Stanley, this means there is little to complain about. Stanley has always been sarcastic, but he raises the stakes here into insubordination this episode, forcing Michael to respond – even though he doesn’t want to. The episode gives Leslie David Baker a chance to do more than the sarcasm this time – and he does disappoint, pushing Carrel to the type of place of awkward brilliance.
95. Frame Toby (Season 5, Episode 8) – Michael is still upset that Holly has been transferred – and may be even more upset that Toby has been brought back as her replacement. He decides to try and frame him as a drug dealer. Pam gets passive-aggressive about a messy microwave – the kind of thing that happens in every office. And Jim finally reveals his plans to buy his parents’ house to Pam (which, for the record, he should have done BEFORE he bought it). Just an enjoyable episode from beginning to end – without ever rising to a classic episode.
94. Valentine’s Day (Season 2, Episode 16) – Michael’s tour of New York City is hilarious, and his presentation to the new CFO is even better, and everything with him and the other branch managers is even better – all culminating in showing what a decent guy he can be, when he protects Jan. For the most part, the Valentine’s Day stuff back at the office is a little more forgettable – although Phyllis and the giant teddy bear is wonderfully funny.
93. Take Your Daughter to Work Day (Season 2, Episode 18) – Anyone who has a daughter – and Meredith, who has a son who has been suspended – bring their kids to work – showing how the main characters deal with children. Jim is, of course, absolutely charming and they love him. Dwight scares them. Pam cannot connect with any of them. Ryan is terrified when Stanley’s middle school daughter develops a crush on him – making the docile Stanley scream at him. And Michael ends up bonding with, of all people, Toby’s daughter. Overall the episode is solid throughout. What elevates it is the scene of Michael showing his video of him being a “child star” – and it really is one of the saddest moments in the entire series.
92. Nepotism (Season 7, Episode 1) – Everyone in the office hates the new assistant – except for Michael, since he is his nephew, although he has yet to tell anyone else about it. A fine way to start off season 7 with a funny episode – as the nephew screws everything up, getting everyone mad at him, as Michael scrambles to correct it – all of it leading to a spanking. It’s also the start of Dwight, the landlord, acting crazy – and Pam decides to pull a prank on him. This is the show easing back into its groove with an unambitious, but very funny, season premiere.
91. Basketball (Season 1, Episode 5) – Michael challenges the warehouse guys to a basketball game – bringing in what he thinks is his best players, ignoring the talents of people like Kevin and Phyllis, in favor or Stanley – and then Jim getting too competitive against Roy to impress Pam. All of this leads to Michael, of course, taking things too far – and he cannot even stick the landing, not making anyone work the weekend, which they like, by acknowledging that doing so likely won’t save any of their jobs anyway. A fine episode.
90. Health Care (Season 1, Episode 3) – Another solid episode from Season 1 – with Michael having to pick a new, cheaper, health care plan knowing it won’t go over well with the staff, so making Dwight do it to try and remain popular. Highlights include Dwight reading out everyone’s ailments, trying to figure out which were fake and not. This is probably the season 1 episode that best utilized the wider ensemble cast – and its stronger for it.
89. The Secret (Season 2, Episode 13) – Michael reveals Jim’s secret “past” crush on Pam, and it gets all around the office, making things super awkward for Jim, as everyone reacts to it. The highlight maybe Michael and Jim going to Hooters – at least in terms of the hilarious moments – and also the legitimately sweet one where Jim lies to Pam about how the crush was in the past. One of those episodes that maybe be necessary to advance some plot, and is solid all the way around, without ever quite reaching classic status.
88. Two Weeks (Season 5, Episode 19) – Having quit at the end of the last episode, Michael is now working out the string of his two weeks’ notice – and shockingly, he gets even less done than normal, while he tries to get the Michael Scott Paper Company off the ground. The end of the episode is great – Michael sneaking back into the office, crawling on the ground, desperate and pathetic – and Pam just going for it. The climax is vintage Office, the rest is just really good.
87. Christening (Season 7, Episode 7) – The writers basically try to repeat some of the awkward magic of other Jim and Pam centric milestone episodes – like the two partners from season 6 about the wedding and the delivery – and while it doesn’t hit the heights of either of those, it’s still lots of fun. Michael, of course, doesn’t always handle these types of things well – and ends up joining a mission trip to Mexico. A charming episode throughout.
86. Manager and Salesman (Season 6, Episode 16) – New boss Jo (Kathy Bates) doesn’t like the whole co-manager thing, and decides that either Jim and Michael have to go back to sales – they both want the manager’s job, until they realize the new commission policy means they could make more money there. This leads to Michael as a salesman for a short period of time – but he cannot be a man of the people anymore. It’s an amusing episode all the way through – although I’ve always wondered if it’s basically just them undoing what they did earlier in the season in promoting Jim in the first place.
85. Classy Christmas (Season 7, Episode 11) – Michael finds out Holly is coming back to the branch to replace Toby as he becomes a juror on the Scranton Strangler case. He junks the office Christmas party, so he can throw a classy one the day Holly arrives. One of the better later season hour long episodes – with Michael trying so hard to impress Holly, that it backfires on him. It also has some emotion, with Darryl and his daughter. And as 6much as I enjoy Jim pranking Dwight over the years, I have to admit there is a sick thriller watching him finally get his comeuppance here. The Office always had great Michael-centric Christmas episodes – and even if this is probably a notch below the best of those, it’s still an excellent episode.
84. Customer Loyalty (Season 9, Episode 12) – This is probably the most controversial Season 9 episode – because it’s the one where Jim undeniably acts like an asshole to poor Pam. Cece has a dance recital that night, and he’s supposed to be back for it, but has to stay in Philly longer – and tells Pam to film it, who accidentally messes up. This leads to the final phone between the two of them that episode, which leaves Pam in tears (and brings Brian, the sound guy, to the rescue). Personally, I’ve always liked that the office went there in season 9 – showing that even the seemingly perfect couple goes through tough times (although, I would have liked the issues to perhaps be more equally weighted – it’s pretty much all Jim’s fault). Still, it’s a shocking office moment – and a great one.
83. The Promotion (Season 6, Episode 3) – It is the first episode of Michael and Jim trying to co-manage the branch, and they are immediately given a challenge by David Wallace – who informs them that the company won’t be able to give full raises this year – and so it’s up to the two of them to determine what to do – a raise for everyone so small they’d barely notice or find a way to reward some, and not others. Jim tries to be mature and reasonable about the whole thing (but, I will say, I don’t agree with his reasoning of giving raises to just the salespeople, for many reasons) – and Michael does, well, what he does – and Jim finally understanding why perhaps Michael has trouble making difficult decisions. Overall, a fine episode – but it’s also kind of a repeat of when Jim tried to combine all the birthdays.
82. Counseling (Season 7, Episode 2) – Following Michael’s spanking of his nephew, he is forced to attend counselling sessions with Toby – which of course he hates, but if he doesn’t do it, it means bigger trouble. The Michael and Toby scenes are great. The B and C plots are both good as well – as Pam decides to try and lie her way into a different job, since she isn’t particularly great at sales, and Dwight is refused business at the local mall – so Andy and Jim try and make him into a proper gentlemen. That one is, admittedly, the kind of thing The Office didn’t used to indulge in – but when it’s pulled off this well, it’s hard to complain.
81. Koi Pond (Season 6, Episode 8) – Michael and Jim head out on a sales call together, - and when they return, it comes to light that Michael fell into a koi pond at the other office – much to everyone’s delight. In the B-plot, Pam and Andy go on cold calls together, and everyone thinks they’re a couple – and no matter their response, they take it too far. This is a fine Michael episode – although it doesn’t really reveal anything new about him – we already knew he likes to make fun of everyone else, but has the thinnest skin of the office. Still, Carrel plays it well – as does Krasinski, and the ending of this story is excellent. I also like the chemistry between Helms and Fischer – something that didn’t get explored much in the show.
80. Whistleblower (Season 6, Episode 26) – The season 6 finale finds the story of the smoking printers getting out into the press, and Jo wanting to know who leaked it – and there are no shortage of suspects, and people who could have done it. It’s good to see Michael interacting with Kathy Bates (who is probably at her best here) – and it’s fun to see the other investigation going. I also like the final scene with Nick – which kind of exposes how self-involved every is. It’s always fun seeing Michael interact with the media as well. In terms of the legendary season finales this show normally has, then no, it’s not quite up to the best. But as a late season 6 episode, it’s about as good as it gets.
79. Secret Santa (Season 6, Episode 13) – The Office does Christmas episodes right – and this is another one that is just plain fun. Jim tells Phyllis that she can be Santa this year – which angers Michael to no end, who decides to one-up them. But everyone is the office is thinking of other things however, as David Wallace has told Michael that Dunder Mifflin is being bought – and they have no idea what is going to happen. It’s also great to see the different people’s Secret Santa gifts to everyone – Dwight assembling his, and Andy’s gifts to Erin going awry. This may be the least of all the office Christmas episodes of the Michael Scott era – but it’s still an utter delight.
78. The Meeting (Season 6, Episode 2) – Jim has a meeting with David Wallace – to discuss getting a promotion to Branch Manager, while Michael would also be promoted, but makes the mistake of keeping Michael in the dark about it (he thinks he’ll mess it up – not thinking that he could mess it up anyway, which he kind of does). There are some classic goofy Michael moments (the cheese plate) and awkward – the conversations on the phone with David. The B plot has Dwight and Toby trying to prove Darryl faked an insurance claim, which is quite funny.
77. Customer Survey (Season 5, Episode 6) – Dwight and Jim are very disappointed that the annual customer survey results – which affects their bonus – come back and are far lower than normal, leading to them to team up to figure out why. The scene with Jim and Dwight on a fake phone call - when Michael decides to train them – is one of those great, stand-out hilarious moments in the entire run. The episode never hits those heights again – although Michael and Kelly in his office is also great. Jim and Pam with very small blue tooth headsets are also wonderful. And yet, the episode overall is strangely unmemorable – great moments elevate a good to episode to a near great one.
76. Moroccan Christmas (Season 5, Episode 10) – Phyllis is reveling in her new-found power as head of the Party Planning Committee – seemingly doing everything she can to anger Angela, who is powerless to react, lest Phyllis reveals her secret affair with Dwight. Michael also decides that it is time to stage an intervention for Meredith – who has been an alcoholic for years. The whole episode is funny – but it’s another one that has a classic ending, better than anything else in the episode.
75. Heavy Competition (Season 5, Episode 22) – Dwight has always been loyal to Michael – but that loyalty is tested here, when Michael wants some leads, and Dwight eventually fights back – leading to an out-and-out battle between the two for Dwight’s clients. It is another reminder of how good Michael can be at this – he comes across as sane, as opposed to Dwight, who is more than slightly crazed. It’s also funny to see Dwight in a full sleeve shirt – complaining about his lack of mobility. With Dwight busy, Jim decides to mess with Andy instead – which kind of does prove Charles’ point about him. It’s a fine episode from beginning to end – and is probably bumped up a few spots because of the cheese balls.
74. Job Fair (Season 4, Episode 13) – Michael takes Oscar, Pam, and Darryl to Pam’s old high school for a Job Fair, and is shocked to discover the cool kids don’t seem that interested in joining a paper company. Meanwhile Jim, reeling from being chewed out by Ryan, takes his job more seriously (for one episode) – going for a golf game to land a major client. The Job Fair part is better than the golf part – although both work quite well, and I was quite moved by Jenna Fisher in this episode – visiting her old high school, and it really sinking in that she didn’t follow through on her art ambitions – leading to that conversation with a graphic design firm.
73. Dwight’s Speech (Season 2, Episode 17) – Dwight is the company’s top salesman – and has deliver a speech, but has no idea how to do it. Michael tries to help, but of course isn’t great even though he won the same award twice, and gave two what he assures everyone were great speeches. But Dwight’s takes Jim advice – and basically delivers a speech like Mussolini. It’s that extended speech which is the comic highlight of the entire episode – following Michael being brought low by falling on his face during his remarks. More of a standalone than anything – but a good one.
72. Cocktails (Season 3, Episode 17) – Two sets of cocktail parties go horribly awry in this episode – as Michael and Jan and Jim and Karen have them at David Wallace’s house (as Dwight literally inspects the entire house) – while the people at the office go to the famous Poor Richard’s – and this is when Pam decides it’s the best time to tell Roy, who she has just gotten back together with, about her kiss with Jim. The head office party is kind of a perfect mixture – three very different comedic plots, Michael and Jan and the awkwardness that comes with them, Karen playing a perfect joke on Jim, and Dwight’s craziness – at Poor Richards it all just builds to that moment when Roy explodes (although Roy’s brother, and the jet ski money has a nice payoff). This is a filler episode – one that has to deliver a lot of information to set-up later episode – but one that does that perfectly.
71. E-Mail Surveillance (Season 2, Episode 9) – The E-Mail surveillance aspect of this episode actually doesn’t matter much – a rare instance where they seem to be setting something up that could be great, and then abandoning it. What makes the episode is the party that Jim throws – inviting everyone but Michael. It shows a different side of Jim – different relationships between everyone, and sees Michael at improv (and how bad he is) – and ending on a genuinely sweet moment between Michael and Jim.
70. Gossip (Season 6, Episode 1) – This is an odd choice for a season premiere – not because it’s a bad episode, but because it feels like a perfectly fine mid-season episode. Nothing much has changed over the summer – except that they have a few interns for this episodes. The concept is that Michael finds out that Stanley is having an affair, and he spreads that all over the office, before he realizes it could really hurt Stanley if it got out – so he spread rumors about everyone, including one that happens to be true. The episode shows that Michael and Carrel can still be wonderfully funny and awkward, and socially unaware – and it gives everyone in the ensemble gets their moments. The episode is quite good – but like I said, a weird choice for a season premiere.
69. The Search (Season 7, Episode 14) – Jim has to leave Michael in a gas station bathroom because of an emergency – leaving Michael to wander the streets of Scranton without his wallet or cellphone. Erin, Dwight, and Holly hit the streets in search of him. We have seen numerous episode of sitcoms where one character realizes that the other is perfect for them – but I’m not sure I’ve seen one done quite this way, that leads to Holly’s finally relenting, when it’s clear that the two of them are completely in sync. Also, it’s just funny to see Michael interact with all the different people on the street, and to follow his logic as he wanders around. The B-plot about the caption contest is fun as well.
68. Business Trip (Season 5, Episode 7) – David Wallace wants to make it up to Michael for transferring Holly – so he sends him (along with Andy and Oscar) on a business trip – to Winnipeg, in November (which he acknowledges no one else wants to go to). This is one of the sad Michael episodes – he’s really trying to act as if he’s over Holly, when he really, really isn’t. The comic highlight maybe Oscar and Andy bonding in Winnipeg – and drunk dialing Angela. Back at the Office, Jim is excited that Pam will be back in a week – until she tells him she failed a class, and will have to stay for another 3 months – leading to their climax, which according to some is incredibly sweet, and others, incredibly problematic. Why not both?
67. Happy Hour (Season 6, Episode 21) – The funniest episode of the second half of season 6 – this has the entire office, and warehouse staff, heading out for happy hour so Oscar can get to know the cure warehouse guy. It also features Pam – back for the first time since the baby – inviting her friend along for Michael – which goes really well, until they tell him it’s a setup, and he breaks out “Date Mike” – and things go wrong. Overall, this is an episode with multiple plots – the date, Oscar and the warehouse guy, Dwight, and Angela – and Isabelle – Andy and Erin, and all of it works. Sometimes, the show needs to get out of the office to hit some new notes – and this one nails it.
66. New Boss (Season 5, Episode 18) – Idris Elba’s first episode – he comes into the role vacated by Ryan, and Jan before that – and has zero patience for Michael’s nonsense, and also doesn’t seem to be impressed by Jim – seeing him as a slacker. This is a classic Michael episode – as he gets angrier and angrier – to be fair, he has reason to be angry – but handles it like a child. Meanwhile, Elba is a deadpan delight as he handles everything. A very good episode – with a classic ending.
65. Prince Family Paper (Season 5, Episode 12) – David Wallace wants information on a family run paper company, who Dunder Mifflin cannot seem to crack, and sends Michael to get the information – who takes along Dwight. Michael wants to be a shark – a titan of industry – but that family is so nice, so polite to him and Dwight, that he doesn’t want to destroy them. Back at the office, this is the infamous Hilary Swank debate. Somehow, everyone remembers the B-plot here, even though the A-plot is also wonderfully awkward and funny. Just a really good episode all the way around.
64. Product Recall (Season 3, Episode 20) – A disgruntled employee at the mill put an obscene watermark on their paper, and it went to all their clients, putting everyone into crisis mode. It is a great Michael episode – who believes that he needs to get ahead of the crisis by holding a press conference to explain the problem, even though the press doesn’t care, and the client he chooses doesn’t want a simple apology. It also throws Jim and Andy together to go to a high school – where Andy makes a discovery that you think is going to end up being bigger than it is. It’s a funny episode – not a really deep one.
63. Night Out (Season 4, Episode 11) – Michael and Dwight head to New York to party with Ryan – who we are surprised to see welcome them with open arms, as he is clear doing a lot of cocaine, and is spinning out of control. Meanwhile, the rest of the office stays late to get their work done so they don’t have to work on Saturday – and then find themselves locked in the office park. You can argue that this is a placeholder episode – one that sets up Ryan’s downfall that is coming soon, in both the A and B plots – not to mention poor Toby’s goodbye – but those episodes are still necessary, and rarely are they this funny, and the episode subtly shifts the awkwardness to Ryan, and even Jim, and not Michael.
62. A.A.R.M. (Season 9, Episode 22) – The penultimate episode of the entire show – it really does set everything up for the great finale – Dwight and Angela getting engaged, Andy humiliating himself at an audition, Pam starting to regret Jim giving up his dream to continue to live in Scranton. The plot of the episode is also just fun from beginning to end – as Dwight makes Jim Assistant to the Regional Manager, and then tries to find Jim an assistant, which of course will be Dwight. The whole thing culminates with two doozies – the DVD that Jim makes for Pam, and then the whole office crew going to Poor Richards to watch the first part of the documentary. The whole thing just works wonderfully well.
61. Murder (Season 6, Episode 10) – There is an all-day meeting going on at corporate – and by the end they could all be out of a job – so Michael decides to distract the entire staff by forcing them to play a murder mystery game. It’s fun to see the range of bad accents, and how involved everyone gets with it – the goofiness of it all, and also undercut by the seriousness of the potential firing. It’s also sometimes fun to have Jim be the stick in the mud. The closing moments is also wonderful.
59/60. The Delivery Part I & II (Season 6, Episodes 17 & 18) - Easily the emotional high point to the uneven second half of season 6, the Delivery is, of course, about the birth of Baby Cece. The first half has Pam trying to delay going to the hospital as long as possible so she can get an extra day in the hospital, the second half is about the difficulties while there. One of my favorite one-off characters is in the second half – Sarah Baker’s nurse, who clearly doesn’t really like Jim and Pam (which is always fun to see). The first half is just an out-and-out funnier though. Overall, a classic.
58. Branch Wars (Season 4, Episode 6) – Karen, who became regional manager of Utica after the breakup, tries to poach Stanley away from Scranton. Michael decides to get revenge by pranking the branch, bringing Dwight, and an at first unwitting Jim, along with him (Jim agrees to go, because he’s worried how far Michael and Dwight will go). Back at the office, Pam, Toby, and Oscar host their Finer Things club. It’s great to get some closure on Karen – and see her successful (she also has the episodes best line) – and it’s great to see Jim so awkward, and be reminded he didn’t exactly handle things well. Overall, a solid episode from beginning to end.
57. Double Date (Season 6, Episode 9) – One of the great awkward episodes of Season 6 – Michael invites Jim and Pam out to lunch to celebrate Pam’s mom’s birthday, who he is dating, but also decides he has to dump her when he finds out that she is 58. This of course angers Pam – to the point where she decides that for vengeance, she gets to slap Michael – to which he agrees. By Season 6, they didn’t have as many episodes that make you both cringe and laugh – but this one gets that mixture just right.
56. Golden Ticket (Season 5, Episode 17) – Michael decides to put Golden Tickets – giving 10% off your orders for a year – in random boxes – and five of them end up with their biggest customer – the tickets offering no restrictions or conditions. David Wallace is mad, and out for blood, and Michael tries to get Dwight to fall on his sword – with a twist, of course. A wonderful Michael episode, as we watch him squirm in numerous ways, a good Dwight episode, who is torn between loyalty and self-preservation. Also, it’s an interesting Jim episode – normally, he tries to be above it all, and is amused/bemused by Michael – this is about as close as he gets to being pissed.
55. Shareholder Meeting (Season 6, Episode 11) – Michael is invited by the board to be up on stage during the shareholder meeting – where their shareholders are very angry, as they are pretty much on the verge of bankruptcy. He’s just supposed to sit there as the one branch manager turning a profit – but, of course, he cannot do that. It’s a situation full of awkwardness – that just ramps up when Oscar, who has been ranting about all the things they have done wrong, cannot find his voice when given the chance, or Dwight who concentrates on the line management skills. I will say, I love Michael telling off the CEO – even if it’s basically Michael at his most petulant childlike – he’s still not wrong.
54. The Lover (Season 6, Episode 7) – Jim and Pam are back from Puerto Rico – and Michael tells Jim that he is currently dating Pam’s mom. When this comes out to Pam, she becomes a petulant child (delightfully so) and the two of them continue as escalating game of awkwardness, putting the everyone in the office in between. The B-plot – Dwight installing a listening device in a mallard, that he gives to Jim is fun and funny – but this one is all about Michael and Pam – and it’s a wonderful.
53. Michael Scott Paper Company (Season 5, Episode 21) – Michael, Pam and Ryan are now officially on their own – working out of a storage closet in the office park, and driving each other absolutely crazy. Really, everyone should have seen this coming – but it’s an absolute delight to see. Things get even more awkward, when Pam tries to get her job back – and cannot, as this is also the debut of Erin (Ellie Kemper) – as the new receptionist. But it also ends on an absolute high point – as Pam makes the first sale of the new company. Andy and Dwight both bonding, and competing, is amusing.
52. The Client (Season 2, Episode 7) – There is always a question of how someone like Michael got to be regional manager in the first place – and this episode shows perhaps how. He and Jan are meeting with a potential huge client – played by Tim Meadows – and it is Michael, not Jan, who reads the situation correctly, and is able to make the sale – showing that Michael can be competent as well (and starting his relationship with Jan). Back at the office, the staff acts out Michael’s screenplay – a gag they’ll repeat in season 7.
51. The Duel (Season 5, Episode 11) – Michael decides, right before he leaves for corporate for a meeting, that the moment is right to finally tell Andy about Dwight’s affair with Angela. This all leads to a wonderful duel between the two of them – which is hilarious, especially for Andy’s surprisingly brilliant strategy. Still, it all ends probably as it should – the two of them not so subtly, but not directly, dumping her. Michael is also surprised to learn that David Wallace didn’t call him in because he’s in trouble – but because he’s done something right – and yet has no idea what it is. The Duel is what you remember – and its wonderful – but it’s only a few minutes.
